Dominique Aegerter (32) can also do premier class.

After two World Championship titles in a row in the Supersport World Championship, the Bernese will drive in the higher-class Superbike World Championship in 2023, which is the premier class for near-series motorbikes.

Because the first time he got to know his new 1000cc machine in December was totally rainy, Aegerter is only doing his first Superbike test laps on a dry track this week.

The newcomer in Jerez, Spain, immediately goes full throttle. After two days of testing, Aegerter appears in the middle of the Superbike world class in 6th place. The Rohrbacher shocked the opponents with a dream lap time. So fast as a newcomer: the competition is impressed.

Right away he is the second best out of six Yamaha riders and the best rider from a customer team. Factory driver Andrea Locatelli, whose place Aegerter dreams of in 2024, has to line up behind the Swiss right away.

But the Supersport World Champion puts it down to fast qualifying tires that he was able to test. He says: “These tires are incredible. Sixth place shows that I’m on the right track. Otherwise, the day was a bit bumpy, we had to deal with some ups and downs. »

But Aegerter is extremely happy to see that he is competitive. Before the test he slept really badly because of the uncertainty. “I was very nervous. But now I’ve shown that I can ride this bike fast.”

The season already starts at the end of February in Australia.
